It's such a bad phone that customer should think many times before buying this this phone. It has not completed it's 1 year yet and I'm facing a lot of problem with this. Also if you go to service center, they will charge you high amount for rectification, it's better to buy another phone instead of spending on this. My mobile once fallen not from very much height, it's display and touch bot got damaged instantly. Not only this, once I plugged in for charging then suddenly it's software got damaged. I mean I have not seen this kind of phone. It's inappropiate. I think Samsung should do something for the same.

Today, i tried to mirror my mobile's display on samsung smart tv. But i found out it doesn't support sreen mirroring. What a shame! Even A5 2015 supports screen mirror. You expect improvements in new model not downgrades. Samsung this is pathetic.

Transfering apps to sd card doesn't really help. The only option you have is rooting your device and make your sd card internal storage.

Maybe because mobile's performance suffer when you use poor micro sd card. Now you can enable this option.
You need to be little techy for this. You can root your mobile, of course this will void your warranty. After rooting you can install app Root Essentials from Google play store.
With this app you can make your sd card as internal storage.
Keep in mind use original at least class 10 micro sd card to use this feature. Otherwise it will destroy the performance of your phone. You would hate your phone.
I have rooted my phone. I m using class 10 micro sd card as internal storage. No more worries about low storage. I have installed many apps including Asphalt 8 and other big size games. And my mobile is giving buttery performance.
One more thing. After rooting you will not able to update your phone to new android software. But no worries. You can download update from sam mobile for your model and install update. Of course you will have to root your phone again if you apply update.

Now I am facing a problem. My camera not clear. It cannot focus. One time I re-setup the phone. No improvement. Then I did factory reset. Still I can't solve it. Any solution my friends.
The other problem internal memory. In that I am very disappointed.
We cannot lock huge size data eg.4-5 GB using app lock . We can store data in memory card up to 100-150 gb. But when we lock using applock the locked files automatically will go to system internal memory. That's the problem. After installation the applications it usable only 5 or 6 gb. How can I solve this two problems. Reply fast my friends. I am waiting your valuable advise.

As far as memory is concerned, i have installed 16gb class 10 memory card and made it adaptable internal storage rooting my phone. So no worries about shortage of storage.
When nougut is released i can flash it from Sammobile website using odin. So no worries about update as well.

But it has smaller display (4.7 inch), less battery power but display does not support 1K HD as I have compare it to A5 (2106). My father uses a A5 and it is good reliable device and it will also get Android 7 Update in few weeks. So, unless you do not need dust/water resistant device and can handle a 5.2 inch device; than go for A5 (2016).
ok so i have a dilema. in my country a5 2016 and a3 2017 is absolutely for the same price and i don't know which one to buy. size doesnt matter, the most important things are camera and battery life. opinions?
